Lectureship in Wind Energy

Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) has recently prioritised energy research at a national level.  The Departments of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Electrical & Electronic Engineering, within University College Cork, are actively involved in research and teaching in the area of Wind Energy.  These activities are very much influenced by research priorities in Ireland and the EU, driven by the National and EU targets for electricity from Renewable Energy Sources (RES). It is expected that Wind Energy will contribute most of the renewable and sustainable electricity.

An exciting opportunity has arisen with the support of SFI to attract a top quality researcher to establish a new world class research group within the area of wind energy to strengthen and build research activity in this important strategic area.  This prestigious 5-year whole-time position is funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) under the SFI Engineering Professorships and Lectureships Programme.

Reporting to the Head of the Department, the successful candidate will actively engage in research in wind energy engineering and establish a research group through competitive funding from SFI.  The postholder shall also supervise PhD students and teach in the area of Wind Energy Engineering. The candidate must have a PhD in engineering or a cognate area, with a strong research record. Evidence of a personal contribution and commitment to excellence in both research and teaching is required.
